      Africa is generally held to be in crisis, and the quality of life for the majority of the continent's inhabitants has been declining in both relative and absolute terms. In addition, the majority of the world's disease burden is realised in Africa. Geographical information systems (GIS) technology, therefore, is a tool of great inherent potential for health research and management in Africa. Introduction While the mapping of health data is not new to epidemiologists, advances in geographic information system (GIS) technology provide new opportunities for epidemiologists to study associations between environmental exposures and the spatial distribution of disease.

Environmental Impact Assessment is a key application domain of environmental information and decision support systems. EIA is a classical application of scenario analysis, addressing WHAT - IF questions, which requires a number of IT elements: Data management for the baseline and project alternatives; A knowledge base for a rule-based intelligent evaluation framework; Simulation models for the 3/5(1).

    In the Australian public health context, GIS has primarily been used to analyse the spread of infectious diseases, to model environmental influences on disease, to identify communities with unusually high or low incidences of disease or illness and to identify communities with low access to health services (Hugo, ; Hugo et al., ).Cited by: The Utilization of Geographic Information Systems in Healthcare Zacharias Dermatis1, Dimitrios Tsoromokos1, Filipos Gozadinos1 and Athina Lazakidou1 Abstract Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are integral to the management of health care data, the .

By Sandra Lach Arlinghaus and S. Arlinghaus AbstractAuthor: Sandra Lach Arlinghaus and S. Arlinghaus. A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic applications are tools that allow users to create interactive queries (user-created searches), analyze spatial information, edit data in maps, and present the results of all these operations.

Traffic-related air pollution is a potential risk factor for human respiratory health. A Geographical Information System (GIS) approach was used to examine whether distance from a main road (the Tosco-Romagnola road) affected respiratory health status.
